Chery Tiggo 4 pro and MG ZS stays on the top with excellent comfort features than the rest. Both of these have a premium feel to them which is absent in the Elantra 1.6L and Kia Stonic EX. 

Safety Features Comparison

Which one of these four is the safest? Let’s find out.

While MG ZS and KIA Stonic offer more airbags, Chery Tiggo 4 Pro offers safety features like downhill brake assist, auto hold and auto emergency braking. There is no clear winner here, though this much can be said that the Elantra 1.6L does not offer outstanding safety features.   

Price Comparison

Irrespective of how comfortable and safe a car is, for many, price is the deciding factor. Elantra 1.6, despite being cheaper, doesn’t provide the best bang for the buck. MG ZS seems to be a better option in the given price range if you cannot afford Chery Tiggo 4 Pro. 


KIA Stonic might not be the best value for money considering the price, specs, and features. 

ModelsPrice (Rs)
Elantra 1.64,299,000
MG ZS4,399,000
KIA Stonic EX4,425,000
Chery Tiggo 4 Pro4,599,000

Which one should you get?

You might have guessed already – both MG ZS and Chery Tiggo 4 Pro are good value for money vehicles with excellent build quality, features, rich specs, and premium driving experience. 

MG, KIA, and Hyundai already have their official dealerships in major cities of Pakistan. Considering their extended service network and brand worth, cars from any of these manufacturers would be a good investment. 

Of the four, which one would you choose and why?
